AMERICAN IMMIGRATION LAWYERS ASSOCIATION
Minnesota / Dakotas Chapter
Founded in 1946, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is a national bar association of attorneys who practice and teach immigration law. AILA Member attorneys represent tens of thousands of U.S. businesses and industries, foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. AILA is an Affiliated Organization of the American Bar Association.
The Minnesota/Dakotas Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and The Advocates for Human Rights would like to welcome you to the 2017 Upper Midwest Immigration Conference, the premier regional immigration law forum. We have assembled a prestigious team of immigration experts, including our chapter’s best and brightest, as well as a range of national speakers. This is a year unlike any other. On January 20, 2017, U.S. immigration law, policy and practice entered a new era. Within days of his inauguration, President Trump made it clear he would push forward on many of his immigration-related campaign promises, forcing immigration practitioners and their clients into unchartered and murky waters. We are here to navigate these waters with you by offering you creative and novel strategies, resources, in-depth analysis and networking opportunities intended to allow you to handle the new guard and prepare for what lies ahead. Thank you for joining us and have a wonderful conference!
